DAMASCUS: A suicide bomber killed at least four people and wounded 17 in central Damascus on Tuesday, Syrian state television reported.
"Four dead, 17 injured in a suicide bombing in the Jebbeh district of Jisr al-Abyad," state television said in a breaking news alert.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitoring group, said the target of the attack appeared to be a government building.
Suicide bombers have repeatedly targeted the capital in the bloody 33-month conflict pitting forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad against rebels seeking his ouster. (AFP)
